I remember Melinda Naud! She & Jim Varney were the only two cast members of the ill-fated OPERATION PETTICOAT that survived the complete overhaul/retooling between S1 & S2. I was one of the dozen or so people who actually watched (and loved) PETTICOAT that first season. I was not pleased, and didn't mind when it was cancelled ten episodes into S2.

OUT: John Astin, Richard Gilliland, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

IN: Robert Hogan, Randolph Mantooth, and Hillarie Thompson.

Harrison (then 25) who was sentenced to five years probation for fostering a sexually explicit relationship with an 8th grade girl over Facebook. (also kissed her a few times).

Unless there are two Quinn E. Harrisons of similar age, it's Greg & Randi's boy. DL won't let me link the article.

Some of you have loose definitions of the word "forgotten". Abe Vigoda? As long as people continue to watch The Godfather, Abe Vigoda will be remembered.

Polly Holliday? She only played one of the most iconic characters of 70s television.

Ditto Roz Kelly -- if for nothing else, she'll always be Pinky Tuscadero.

And trust me, people born before 1980 have definitely *not* forgotten TV Hall of Fame inductees the Smothers Brothers.

Whenever they can't get their dream guest that week (happens often, with so many of them dropping dead of old age), they bring on some witty queen who has written a book about Viv Vance, Tommy Smothers, or The Golden Girls.

Cesar Romero apparently had a thing for hustlers, and according to Hollywood gossip, would pay them extra to yank down his pants and throw orange wedges at his bare ass. Anyone who landed one into his gaping hole would get an additional cash bonus.

It's surely not true, but it's just the sort of filth Gilbert and Frank love to laugh about again and again.

R258 I waited on him in a store once. I thought it may have been him, confirmed when he gave me his credit card. He wasn't very nice and was somewhat dismissive around me, but it struck me as the way an older gay (maybe he was in his late 30s) assumes a younger gay (mid 20s) must be judging him...so it was a pre-emptive strike on his part, aka "let me be rude to this young gay who doesn't understand that looks fade." Meanwhile, it was far from the truth: I liked Breaking Away, California Dreaming, Fade to Black, but then thought he was kind of a cunt after the transaction. He was also a tad unkempt and was wearing enough leather for me to think he liked it rough...I got the feeling he was visualizing me naked and spread-eagled and handcuffed to the bedposts.

Lindsay Wagner's career always puzzled me. Yes she brought more to the Bionic Woman than Lee Majors did to the Six Million Dollar Man but her string of made for TV movies revealed she was a competent but rather dull actress. She didn't have the camp factor that Patty Duke or Jane Seymour could often bring to their TV projects.

Inspired by this thread, I went down a Skye Aubrey rabbit hole. Skye died last December. I ended up reading about her daughter, Anastasia Salkind, a painter. Anastasia writes in her Saatchi Art bio: "My early life was like a movie, a lot of movies actually. My godmother is Liza Minnelli. My maternal grandmother, Phyllis Thaxter, has a star on Hollywood Boulevard, and my paternal great grandfather produced the first Greta Garbo movie. My stepmother, Jane, is Charlie Chaplin’s daughter and the granddaughter of Eugene O’Neill. Many books and articles have been written about James Aubrey, “The Smiling Cobra,” president of CBS and later MGM, who was responsible for television shows like “Leave It To Beaver,” “The Beverly Hillbillies,” and “Gilligan’s Island.” He was also my grandfather. And my parents? Well, my dad and his father produced the Superman films with Christopher Reeve. My life has been full of wonderful surprises and consistent creative madness." Doesn't mention Skye, oh well.

Imagine growing up with all those connections though. She doesn't seem jaded about it, as so many showbiz kids do.

r417 Kerkorian hired Aubrey. Kerkorian just looked at the P&L statement and didn't care what it took to turn a profit...Aubrey was responsible for the day-to-day operations.

"Kerkorian immediately installed former CBS president James T. Aubrey (1918–1994) to run the studio, with instructions to cut costs and reduce output. One result was MGM's successful run of low-budget "blaxploitation" films, notably Shaft (1970) and its various sequels and television spinoffs. But soon Aubrey began to dismantle the studio, auctioning off a treasure trove of memorabilia and archival material, and selling the MGM backlot for real-estate development. The most drastic move came in 1973, the year that Kerkorian opened his MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas (then the largest hotel in the world), when Aubrey sold MGM's distribution operation to United Artists, which had been acquired in 1967 by Transamerica, and announced that MGM would produce only a few pictures per year."

R415 I liked Sheree. She was a working actress who should have been bigger. She was a pretty good dancer who added some life to the otherwise flaccid "Living It Up." She was treated horribly by Fox who persisted in using her as a threat to Marilyn Monroe (eg "you can be replaced") and putting her with Betty Grable in the awful "How to Be Very Very Popular" when Monroe turned it down. The studio was trying to recreate the spark of "How to Marry a Millionaire," but audiences weren't buying it. Betty Grable—the blonde that had helped carry Fox through the war years had been gradually treated like shit by Fox as Monroe came up in the ranks—was so done with Fox after the experience she never made a picture again. North was in over her head with musical comedy and while Fox continued to push her (Life Magazine cover, etc.) the public never embraced her and she was dropped by the studio. North managed to recreate herself as a stage actress (she was in the original run of "I Can Get it for You Wholesale" on Broadway with Barbara Streisand and Elliot Gould) but had a rough go of it in the 1960s. She did fairly well on TV in the 70s doing a lot of TV movies and was especially spicy as Lou Grant's girlfriend on The Mary Tyler Moore Show but she fizzled out...except for a brief turn as Kramer's mom on Seinfeld.

At the time he was living (I think) somewhere in New England, maybe Vermont, and he was doing furniture making / home building. He struck me only as someone who was bored and was connecting with people online, like a lot of people in the pre-Internet Explorer and pre-Netscape days of AOL and Prodigy. At some point what he had done for a living prior to carpentry came up and of course I remembered Jake in 16 Candles. He was nice but a little dull and in retrospect he was probably looking for some leads for his carpentry business.

Speaking of Sheree North, I remember watching a movie with my mom on Dialing For Dollars as a kid called The Lieutenant Wore Skirts, a Frank Tashlin comedy where she's married to Tom Ewell. He's a Hollywood screenwriter who has to go back in the service, so she joins up, too. He flunks his physical. or something, and she's now in the service and he's just tagging along. I think he tries to get her out on a Section 8, tries to drive her crazy a la Charles Boyer/Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight. Iirc, he puts crumbled potato chips in her cold cream, for ex. My mom and I referred to this scene every once in a while when it seemed someone was trying to drive one of us crazy. Rita Moreno was also in it, and Rick Jason. Not a great movie, but Sheree and Tom were great, she was gorgeous, and she should have had a better career at Fox.

R466 I had to go down the rabbit hole of reading about this show…First, the child actress who played her kid is D-E-A-D. Died at 45.

Then this…”I'm a Big Girl Now" ran 17 episodes on ABC's Friday night schedule, right after "Benson.” Canova had just finished three seasons as one of the stars of ABC's "Soap," and the producers of that show rewarded her by giving her a series of her own. One of those producers was Tony Thomas, son of Danny Thomas - hence Danny's participation. Canova's character worked at a think tank - her stern boss was played by Sheree North, and her wacky co-worker was played by Martin Short. Short once explained that halfway through the series the producers decided to change Canova's job to a newspaper reporter, thinking that would give them more interesting plots... but they didn't want to fire the supporting cast, so North and Short's characters now worked at the newspaper too. It was that kind of show.”

Ann Turkel a whore? Ann comes from a wealthy NYC family, she made her own money as a top model in the late 1960s and 1970s. Ann was photographed by the top photographers of the day, such as Lord Patrick Lichfield. She married Richard Harris, after their divorce they remained close friends.

Never heard anything bad about Ann. Where do some of you get this crap?

Vicki (no e at the end) can still be seen in reruns of "Mama's Family" and "The Carol Burnett Show" and was in a sitcom called "The Cool Kids" that ran on Fox for one season in 2018-2019. Not forgotten.

We haven’t even as much mentioned, let alone celebrated the incomparable Nina Talbot! She was a mainstay in the 60s,70s, and even right up until the mid-80s, with her appearance in “Night Shift,” starring Henry Winkler & Shelley Long.
